in montana, we learn values like hard work and common sense. we also learned the difference between right and wrong. it's just plain wrong for insurance companies to devalue coverage when you get sick and need it the most. [ applause ] >> it is just plain wrong for insurance companies to deny people care because of pre-existing conditions. that's why we are working so hard to kraft a common sense plan that is right for our state and right for america. here in montana, we also know the value of an honest word. let me tell you, there is plenty of dishonesty out there about what health care reform will or will not do. now, you've all seen the tv show, mythbusters, right? i have been going around the state busting myths about health care, whether it is bogus information about rationing care, cutting benefits for sen yu y yurs or interfering with the doctor/patient relationship. these myths are being busted right open. they are just plain balogna. that's why our president is here to talk with us and help us spread the truth about health care reform. it will lower costs. it will give -- make su
to turn to the president now. he is on his way to montana for another health care town hall. why montana? is there an expectation for a lively debate at this town hall? >> montana is a historical red state. there might be a bit more of an opportunity for controversy. on tuesday in portsmouth, new hampshire, he solicited more skeptical questions. we will see if that plays out. montana is also the home of max baucus. that committee will be the center of gravity. when congress comes back in the middle of september, the white house has set this deadline for the committee. if it does not, the white house has indicated, it might proceed strictly on its own without the -- without republicans on board. max baucus is a central figure in this legislative drama. rick: we want to hear from you if you have received an unsolicited email from the white house. tell us about it. for moron this, we have a couple of great guests. we're also joined by an editor for "the national review." everybody hates chain letters. >> particularly, if they are coming from the white house. rick: what do you make all of th

know, a lot of people talk about max bachus. max bachus pays attention to what people say in montana. he does. there's been single payors in his state. and this republican force is going to die. when grassley said the other day he pretty much admitted this was a farce, chairman baucus knows he has to get a bill out of this committee and if he only has democrats to work with, guess what the majority democrats on his committee favor a political option. if he's going to get a bill out of this committee with zero republican boats it's going to have to have a public option in the senate finance bill; otherwise, there isn't going to be a bill, right? and he knows there has to be a bill. so it matters what you say. it's one of the reasons i've been very careful not to criticize individual senators. i don't mind talking about their views because at the end, i think we're going to get almost every democratic senator. almost every one because there's not going to be any republicans. they're not going to be interested in forming the bill and, therefore, the democratic caucus is going to have a

at this point, rick. >> rick: we watched the president in colorado and he did the same thing in montana the other day and has the opening statement and takes off his jacket and rolls up his sleeve, and this is a president who looks more like a candidate, like he did before super tuesday last year, does it feel like you are covering a campaign? >> reporter: yeah, absolutely, rick, it certainly does, i mean, three town halls in five days, and from new hampshire to montana, to colorado, and now we're in arizona, and so, feels like campaign mode and the president telling people yesterday in grand junction go out and knock on doors and spread the message of health care reform and he's doing what he has done best, silt ell it i person and rolls up his sleeves and whatever you are asking, your opponent, bring their questions and definitely feels like we are back in campaign mode. >> rick: mike, thanks so much. >> jamie: the president's colorado town hall, was mostly filled with supporters who didn't challenge the president or his reform efforts. at least until the end when 23-year-old zach lon

with the benefits or large out of pocket fees. now, mr. obama is on a four-day western trip. first up, in montana where yesterday he focused on patients who get dropped by their insurance companies in today's web address. the president says he realizes there's skepticism about his proposal. especially at a time of economic upheaval, but he asked for a discussion where we lower our voices. his town halls lacked the raucous crowds that some congressional democrats have faced, but he did take a couple of tough questions yesterday. >> and that's all we get is bull. you can't tell us how you're going to pay for this. you're saving here, you're saving over there, you're going to take a little money here, a little money there, but you have no money. >> you're absolutely right. that i can't cover another 46 million people for free. you're right. >> even some republicans are facing confrontation al crowds in their towns. senator chuck grassley is coming to the table with democrats. a larger theme in many of these forums is mistrust of big government solutions and republicans are hammering that message. >>
. the president plans to hold more in montana and new hampshire. the white house has a website to counter critics. >>> during the town hall, president obama says we have the aarp on board. the aarp which has 45 million members over 50 says not so fast here. the ceo says they have not endorsed any of the health care reform bill. aarp is launching a multi-million dollar advertising and organizing this to debunk myths pushed by health care reform critics. >>> fbi investigating this graffiti outside dave scott. the democratic lawmaker found a swastika spray painted on a sign outside his office yesterday. the congressman was recently involved in a heated debate over health care. he believes the two are connected here. the congressman says he's received hate mail, death threats and offensive faxes since the debate on health care began. >> there is bubbling up under this debate, unfortunately the overtones this presents of hate, racism, all these things, but we must have the resolve, hate, racism, this swastika cannot be the arbiter of this debate. >>> congressman scott is hosting a town hall meeting sa
on the road for a town hall. where is he headed? >> he is going to bozeman, montana to a county where he carried by 1600 votes. they have voted twice for him -- for george bush in the past. there is some sense and that they want to get max baucus' attention by going there, and montana is ground zero for health care reform, because that is where he is from. we have already seen people lining up to get tickets to the event. bill: there is a gallup poll out today that says independent voters are moving in a certain way. 35% are more sympathetic to the views of the protesters, opposed to 16% who are less sympathetic. how are these numbers being received? >> in the briefing yesterday, we heard robert kids say that some people were somewhat disappointed that he did not get a tougher response in new hampshire. he constantly talked about the food fight of the debate and have cable news is feeding on this, but clearly from the gallup poll, independents are starting to become sympathetic with these people protesting. certainly not good in terms of public opinion. bill: thank you. megyn: do you rem

. the president will hold two town hall meetings tomorrow in colorado and montana. he has trouble to win over opponents, but that does not seem to be hurting his popularity. according to a brand new fox news opinion dynamic poll, 53% of registered voters say they approve of the president's job performance tree that is a new low. 40% say they disapprove. shannon bream is in washington, d.c. it is interesting to watch the president at these town hall meetings. >> he is so charismatic and he is such a good communicator that during the campaign, thousands of people showed up. now when he goes to the town hall meetings, he is meeting different crowd to have tough questions for him. they want him to back up the rhetoric. the reality of getting stuff done is much tougher. a lot of americans are losing confidence in the president's ability to do that when it comes to health care reform. shepard: where do they see the strategy as having misfired? >> initially, it was put together that we have a lot of people are not covered, and you need to care about your neighbor. when people look at the number and
three town house on thursday in new hampshire, friday in mantegna -- montana, and then the next day in caller. obama is making his pitch today with the same argument -- and the pitch he is making is to those who have health insurance. early on the debate had to do with cost or those who are not insured. but now that pitch is made so that a% who are injured mainly through their employer -- he is trying to tell them how they will benefit. it has been an evolution of the last two weeks. host: the president layoutlays t some key points. it says that reform will being down skyrocketing costs and improve quality. he talks about the tone or tenor. he says that the vigorous debate taking place is a good thing. but let's make sure that we talk with one another and not over one another. he says let's disagree over issues that are real. of course he is tapping into the fact that these town hall meetings have been very explosive, a lot of intense things going on. will the president gained traction with this sort of dialogue? guest: you see people coming to town hall meetings with pitchforks. it
'll also speak this week at town halls in montana and grand junction, colorado. >>> update on a high-speed car chase we brought you just moments ago. lasted about an hour. started about 11:45 eastern time in the upper san fernando valley. a blue honda swerving in and out of lanes driving the wrong way on surface streets going very erratically. the car finally slowed down and as you'll see in a moment, it went into a driveway and that's where police with weapons drawn boxed him in. officers pulled in and pulled the driver out. the suspect was arrested and here is the take down. he had his hands up, but he would not comply with orders to get out, apparently. so, first one officer and then the second move in and pull him out. this chase apparently started after the driver failed to yield. >>> the kennedy family is in mourning and for the death of eunice kennedy shriver, the sister of john f. kennedy died this morning. she founded the special olympics. her daughter was by her side at a massachusetts hospital. she was 88 years old. shriver's son-in-law, california governor arnold schwarze

the government option and the government spending. then out to montana, john mccain carried this state. the president more casual out west. out here, john mccain won, but just narrowly. getting further west, as you always know, there's more skepticism about the role of government and government spending. lastly the president before taking a break, was down in colorado for a town hall. he carried this state, but his message was delivered out in the grand junction area which is conservative country out here. 17% of the residents of colorado are uninsured. as we watch the president make his case, one thing he said in colorado was don't get so f fixated on this so-called public option. i would like one in there, but people are getting hung up on that, and there are other thicks to talk about. we could say we hold these truths to be self-evident. it's clear he doesn't have the votes in the senate. is he sending a message? >> it does sound that way. the president has held pretty fast to the notion of a public option. time and time again, when you press the white house as to whether or not th
, senator baccus of montana, who many do not believe is a democrat. independent voters are the most crucial in terms of general elections. as tony said, the legislative process is sausage-making. some good, some bad -- no one will be totally satisfied. but i do think president obama will sign a bill and it will be called "the health care reform bill." not everyone will be happy. but they have been trying to do this since harry truman. guest: the reason that very liberal chairman head committees -- both parties have done an effective job going through redistricting cycles. we re-draw district lines. both republicans and democrats have put keep members in safe districts. --key members in six districts. that is where the longevity comes from. and addressing your the they lead up to these positions and find themselves out of step with members who come from more competitive districts -- and it keeps them in these positions. guest: it is really the incumbent preservation or both parties make a deal -- do not tamper with my district because we both want to return to serve in office. redistricting
